This picture shows an old sign "No Hawking" somewhere off the York Road in Leeds.
I had parked my car to get my satnav out and find the old cemetery I was looking for. I thought I would have a quick mooch around nearby see if there was anything interesting when I noticed this old sign built into an old gateway.
"No Hawking" not something you might come across here in England this last 30 years or so I guess. From my childhood I think this means no pedlars, no one hawking their goods. I have not seen a sign like this since my childhood and was surprised to see this old one.
I also got to explore a little of Seacroft hospital and took a few photos for this blog, but that will be for another day.
